The Educational Psychology Service is funded by the Local Authority to work with children and young people and their families to provide statutory advice during an assessment for an Education, Health and Care Plan.
In addition, the majority of schools and settings currently pay for additional Educational Psychology Service time, via a Service Level Agreement, in order to give their children and young people access to educational psychology early intervention and preventative work.
Schools / settings that have a traded services agreement with the Educational Psychology Service who wish to make a request for involvement are asked to complete the attached form. All requests should first be discussed with parent / carers ( and young people themselves if 16 or over) and with the involved Educational Psychologist.
Please note that although the Service welcomes discussions with parent / carers and other professionals; we only accepts request for involvement from schools and settings which have a service level agreement with the Service
